  Ways to Burn More Calories

  Run through water

  Running in water is one of the toughest activities you can perform because the wet stuff is about 12 to 15 times as resistant (具有阻力的) as air. Try your hardest to run and you can burn about 17 calories per minute.

  Start fast

  Don’t be fooled — slow and steady won’t win the race. A recent study found that after a short warm-up, cyclists who rode hard during the first half of their workouts and then slowed for the second half burned about 10 percent more calories than those who started slow and finished fast.

  Take to the sand

  Here is some easy-to-remember advice on burning calories: the softer the surface, the more you burn. By walking or running on the beach, you can use up 20 to 50 percent more calories than you do going at the same pace on a hard trail.

  Shut up and dance

  Here’s the perfect excuse to sign up for that hip-hop dance class you’ve been eager to try. Surprising your body with new activities — dance, a new sport, you name it — forces it to work harder because it’s doing unfamiliar movements and using muscle groups in different ways.

  Use your arms

  Getting both your upper and lower body involved can provide a big calorie-burning advantage. So if you’re short of time or want to get everything you can out of your usual 45-minute workout, try total-body activities such as rowing ormming. You can evenng your arms as hard as you can while you walk.

  1. How can water help you burn more calories?

  A. By pushing your body.

  B. By wetting your clothes and shoes.

  C. By forcing you to run faster.

  D. By forcing your body to work harder.

  2. What does “it” in Part 4 refer to?

  A. Dance.

  B. Movement.

  C. Body.

  D. Muscle.

  3. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

  A. One can burn more calories when walking on the sand than on land.

  B. One can burn more calories when walking on stones than on earth.

  C. One can burn more calories when running in water than on the sand.

  D. One can burn more calories when exercising using the upper body than using the lower body.

  (二)

  A popular student in her small high school, Katie started college expecting to do well in her courses and be best friends with her roommates. But things didn’t turn out that way. Psych 101, the course she thought would be a first-semester favorite, turned out to be a struggle. And her roommates were as different from Katie as the student restaurant’s mystery meat was from her mom’s roasted pork.

  Living away from home tends to be the toughest adjustment for first-year students. You may feel homesick in your first weeks or months. It can help to call, write, or email your parents and friends making them know how you’re doing. You can also talk with your roommates. As first-year students themselves, they’re probably experiencing many of the same fears and worries that you’re dealing with.

  But what if you don’t get along well with your roommates?

  In some cases, it can be a good thing if you and your roommates aren’t much alike. Different views on things may be helpful, so respect your differences no matter what.

  If you and your roommates don’t get along well, it can help to find someone who you feel does understand you, which should be easy on a campus with so many people. Many schools have student organization nights where all of the campus clubs gather and promote their organizations, so you can meet people with the same interests there as you. You’ll also meet tons of people in class or in your dorm building.

  As homesickness, painful throats, sprained (扭伤的) ankles and wisdom teeth that act up are common among college students, you should check out your student guidebook or your school’s website to find out information about the university health center.

  If you think you cannot deal with your problems, make a stop at the school counseling (咨询) center. First-year troubles are something the counselors know well. You can get help there.

  4. From Paragraph 1 we can infer that ____.

  A. Katie had been worried about the changes before starting her college life

  B. Katie felt satisfied when her college life started

  C. Katie wasn’t used to the new environment in college at first

  D. Katie has fallen behind in her study after the first semester in college

  5. What’s the author’s suggestion on dealing with homesickness?

  A. Adjust to it.

  B. Share fears and worries with your parents.

  C. Talk to your roommates about it.

  D. Get along with your roommates.

  6. Which of the following ways of dealing with roommates is RIGHT?

  A. Not trying to change them.

  B. Not making friends with them.

  C. Developing the same interests as them

  D. Not talking with them.

  7. What’s the main idea of the text?

  A. Freshmen may meet many problems.

  B. Communication is important in college.

  C. How you can adjust to your first year in college.

  D. How schools help freshmen to get used to college life.

  【答案与解析】

  1. D。第一段提到“the wet stuff is about 12 to 15 times as resistant (具有阻力的) as air”,因此在水中跑步需更用劲。

  2. C。it 代指“Surprising your body with new activities”中的body。

  3. A。根据第3部分内容,A正确。

  4. C。根据第一段的具体描述:Katie学习Psych 101课程有困难,发现室友与她非常不同,不习惯食堂的肉等,可概括出Katie起初不适应大学的环境。

  5. C。根据第二段最后两句话可得出答案。干扰项在B,根据文章内容,跟父母联系是为了“let them know how you’re doing”,因此B错误。

  6. A。根据“so respect your differences no matter what”可推知A正确。

  7. C。文章主要讲了大一新生如何处理想家、健康等问题,以适应大学生活
